non-mouse like browsing support

  • Hi

    Opera is cool browser, but I miss features like other browsers add-ons for browsing without mouse. Like pentadactyl or vimperator. Any chances you can create similar plugin to get rid of the mouse and make reading area bigger in the future?
    Most wanted are opening tab with single character pressed (eg. 't'), searching from site content with single character pressed (eg. '/'), searching from browsing history with single character pressed (e.g. 'h') and move around it with pressing the same again, opening new tab based on current addres, copying current address to the buffer, highlighting and opening links available on the current page.

    Sth like in VimFx, vimperator, pentadactyl, as mentioned before

    If noting is planned, can you give me some hints how can I achieve something like this with current shape of Opera?

    Thanks!

  • Most wanted are opening tab with single character pressed

    You can do this already in Opera. Just change the keyboard shortcut.

    searching from site content with single character pressed (eg. '/')

    Opera already does that. With that exact keyboard shortcut even.

    searching from browsing history with single character pressed

    Again, just change the shortcut for opening the browser history page.

    Sth like in VimFx, vimperator, pentadactyl,

    If any of those are available in Chrome you can test out loading them into Opera using the "Download Chrome Extension'. Otherwise you will have to ask the authers of those extetions to add support for Opera. The Opera dev team doesn't develop extensions, generally.
